As most of you, my heart is breaking over the social divides happening in the US right now. This post is meant to promote love, so please refrain from speaking anything that will bring the opposite.
Before our kids became too old to want bedtime songs sung to them, we would sing the same 4 songs every.single.night. One of them was the age old Jesus Loves The Little Children.
Jesus loves the little children. All the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white. They are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.
Our kids have not grown up noticing color of skin. I’ll never forget the first time our daughter was shocked to hear someone telling a story and referring to someone as black. She didn’t understand why the story needed someone’s skin color pointed out. The truth was it didn’t.
I’ve traveled the world and seen racism in many different forms against all different people. It always breaks my heart. We are ALL people created in God’s image. We are ALL people of color. Some are red. Some yellow. Some black and some white. Let’s see people as people and not negatively distinguish them for their color of skin or where they’re from. Love and peace, friends.
